Gus Palmer wanted nothing more in his life, than to participate in the warrior tradition his tribe honored. His forebears came from a long line of warriors, that protected the Kiowa tribe on the migration across the southern plains. However, fate and a medical condition would disqualify him from going to Vietnam. Disqualified Warriors is a story about loss and redemption in the warrior tradition.
